Like the Wagon Wheel
Even motorcycle magazines recognize the fact that peak oil has arrived in our world. What this means is that all of the 'easy to acquire' oil has been obtained and the only oil remaining is oil that has great environmental cost to extract from the earth. It's hard to reconcile the fact that a motorcycle magazine would know this and our government ignores this very important fact. This denial is further evidence of the influence that oil companies have on our world. Not only must we use less, there are new, potential alternatives out there. Electric, algae, even wood scraps have been enlisted to replace dirty, dangerous, polluting oil Let's make oil our generation's wagon wheel.
